A visual feast for the eyes...

Hello family!

I hope that this post finds you well on your journey. Today at like to talk about creating a comfortable environment of where you work. Often times I read blogs about women and moms who working in very fashionable Industries or are stay-at-home moms or creative types. Being a mom who just returned to work 6 months ago for maternity leave I needed to create a space that would motivate me to work while trying not to miss my daughter too much as she went into her Learning Center or daycare. I started with a clean slate as I had not been back to work in almost a year and went from the ground up and in a couple of hours I turn my sterile office environments into a creative and productive space.

My workspace is a extension of what I wear. The colors the textures the visual as well as being very functionable. Austin & fashion we talked about form following function. And usually it's a given take you can't do one without the other I think. And so this post is a reflection of who I am the bright and colorful and also the studied in learning. I will call the leftt brain and right brain moment. Some days are harder than others leaving my daughter and going to work but I know that I am the main provider in the breadwinner for her so we do what we need to do. And I think we can do that stylishly.

So what I thought I'd do instead of add pictures of some of my outfits and also pictures comparing my outfits or correlating my outfits to my respective work site. Picture 7 is when I first return to work and picture 8 is my current situation.

Hope you enjoy the visual and thank you for reading. As usual be well on your fashionable Journey until next we meet.

    Your green and yellow skirts are so much fun! And, the art above your desk is wonderful. Who’s the artist?

    Wow what a difference you've made to your workplace - it's gone from drab and dreary to happy, colourful and energising. You are one amazing lady Ledonna.

    I love what you have done, I am sure no one in the organisation has to ask "Where does Ledonna sit?" This reflects you and your style perfectly and professionally. Bravo!

    Ledonna, you look positively regal in pic 5. I always enjoy seeing your WIW posts, because you are so creative, bold, vibrant. I like how you extend that sense of color into your workspace, and I always love seeing the latest updates on Nugget <3

    I wish I could answer everyone individually but that MaMa/Work life has me busier than I even know lol  Trying to find that balance is non existent. 

    Well Thank you all so much I'm thankful my career and the place I have worked for the past 15 years allows me to express who I am as an extension of my personal life.  I wear jeans and boots most day and I work with all men so They are used to me by now.  I am very sedate at work and technically inclined so it can be a serious environment so I choose to brighten it up this way. Thank you for taking the time to read and look at our pictures or just lurk. You are all welcome here.
